reform. it is quite a big undertaking considering there isn't a lot of time left but certainly some movement that we have seen since yesterday, guy. >> any specifics? i think important people who are listening to the process of what's happening in washington, what this means for people over a longer period of time is fewer services and smaller government and maybe higher taxes or higher cost of living your life as the services go away. i mean, all of these have amazing and long lasting ramifications for how we live our lives. my specifics? >> huge long -- no. honestly in terms of the specific, i mean, we can talk generally about where the cuts would come from, entitlements, defense spending, you can see how that would affect different people and the nation as a whole. specifics, no, i think we are going to be getting, obviously, more details on that to come. let's just take a look at some of the things that some of the folks who are coming here to the white house are going to demand because, remember, president obama is hosting eight members of congress, top two democrats and top tw

election and we don't know who the republican candidate will be but already we have one big group that is throwing its support behind president obama. jim acosta is on that for us out of washington this morning. hey, jim. >> reporter: good morning, kyra. this is not a big surprise. we went a lot of time talking about the republican race for 2012. on the democratic side the president picked up an important endorsement yesterday from the national education association. this is the teachers union as everybody knows. and the vice president gave a pretty important speech yesterday to this union and so, today, the teachers union is throwing its support behind the president. not unexpected, as i mentioned. we got a quote from the president of the nea, dennis van roekel. what is somewhat surprising about all of this is that the nea would come out with this endorsement this soon. the president has sort of occasionally and his administration has occasionally shown tough love toward the teachers around the country and the nea has come out strongly behind the president he saying they are conc
the cliff thelma and louise style but 43% of independents say what's the big deal? >> what's the pugh research? they only talk to 764 people. >> they did it all yesterday afternoon. >> by the way, we have a panel of independent voters coming up to see how they're feeling about the debt ceiling debate because obviously, they are the coveted group. >> that panel, 765. >> all right. >> a little bit bigger. >> we go to a panel of one. steve winn is the ceo of winn resorts. they have those casinos and stuff like that in vegas. he was on a conference call with investors and investment banks yesterday and he really let the president of the united states have it. we've got some quotes from the conference call. he says, here you go. "i'm saying it bluntly, that this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business and progress and job creation in my lifetime. and i can prove it and i can spend the next three hours giving you examples of all of us in this marketplace that are frightened to death about all the new regulations, our health care costs escalate, regulations coming from left
with the details. the president is talking and they are hoping for a big grand bargain. what is your sense? >> reporter: well, they have to get one done. so it's sort of the opposite of a cliff hanger. we know how it will end. the question is how do they get there from here? the big question first of all that i can report is that the president told congressional leaders that under no terms will he sign a short-term deal. he is not going to accept anything other than something that raises the debt ceiling through 2012 and that is flat out a promise. he was unequivocal. beyond that, the question over the next few days is, how do they get to this negotiation and all eyes are on john boehner, speaker boehner is the man who has to explain to them where he can get the votes, what it would take for them to deliver. and they are really looking to him. all the negotiators, to explain what the deal would look like for them to get on board with that. >> let's look at the tough choices that they have to make. if you have a grand deal, you have to have a number of things. maybe social security means if
the moments. americans are outraged you have to big chunk of americans that still believe that she was guilty in this case and even though she was proven not guilty, many say that doesn't mean she was innocent. and protesters were out there, outside of the jail, waiting for casey to leave just outraged take a listen to what some people were saying. >> we're just out here, we don't care if it's raining, where the thunder is, we're out here. >> it's an important thing to boycott casey, that she gets no money, protest that this kill ser getting out. that she had such a jury trial that was as much a joke. six-year-old would have made a more conscientious decision. >> sheet's definitely guilty. >> and dave mentioned the facebook, there's the i hate casey anthony facebook page. 45,000 now. >> dave: it's up now 48,755 and i would imagine that list will continue to grow throughout the days and weeks ahead. >> clayton: another one, an f-casey anthony page. more than 775,000 individuals on that. so they were choosing between the two facebook pages the i hate casey anthony page and another one. >> ainsl

that the defense attorney brought out. and she focused in and brought the real big picture. and the real big picture is, what does the totality of the evidence show? it shows a girl that did not like her life. had two options. one option was to be a mom. or go back to her single life. she chose to sacrifice her baby. i think the jury will see the arguments of baez and what he is looking for is not acquittal but maybe one or two on the jury to decide with them so he can have a hang or hold out and possibly a hung jury. >>greg: the legal panel will be with us through the hour. plus, live updates from the courthouse in orlando and more on the closing arguments from both the prosecution and the defense. thanks to the venture card from capital one, we get double miles on every purchase, so me and my lads earned arip to san francisco twice as fast we get double miles every time we use our card... i'll take these two... ...no matter what we're buying. ...and all of those. and since double miles add up fast, we can bring the whole gang! it's hard to beat double miles! whoa dude.

decided to engage in just nothing but blatant character assassination. and that, i think, was the big problem in this case. they didn't have -- and they had a sequestered jury. and apparently the kind of guilt by osmosis that they would have seen if they weren't sequestered didn't seep into that jury room. instead of people saying that this is a tragedy, because anytime that you have a little girl who dies, that's a tragedy. to me is absolutely inexplicable. if you don't know what happened, how can you convict somebody beyond a reasonable doubt and put them to death? i mean, it makes no sense whatsoever. maybe it's good for iran or north corey ca but not in america. >> i'm going to ask everyone to stick around. we'll come back to you shortly. let us know what you think. we're on facebook or follow me on twitter @ john king cnn. i'll be tweeting tonight. up next, more what the defense did. how it did for their client with a reputation for truth telling -- in that vein we'll highlight some of the many statements casey anthony made that were simply not true, including an imaginary nanny.
amendment rights. >> a big part of it is how well you're doing it. i did a survey and i asked people who are voters whether they watch fox news or not and i found that 67% of republicans watch fox news several times a week or more. that you knew. but 54% of independents watched it several times a week or more. and 21% of democrats watched it several times a week or more. so there really is an effort here to try to demonize a source of information. and, you know, you guys don't make this stuff up. the stuff you're reporting is stuff that's happening. you know, pugh research did a study during the last campaign that as far as i'm concerned is definitive. they looked at the fox news stuff. not like we're doing now which is opinion. but the news part. the 6:00 and 7:00 news broadcast. and they did the number of seconds that were devoted to positive and negative coverage of each candidate. and the only network that came close to parody between positive and negative on obama and on mccain was fox news. the others were skewed four and five to 1 negative on mccain and positive on obama. >> spea
which is why no congress has ever, ever failed to raise the debt ceiling. it's why the big names on the left and the right from paul krugman to alan greenspan say missing the deadline would be suicidal. tonight house minority leader eric cantor who was against -- said he might be willing to talk about closing some tax loopholes. he and the rest of the democratic leadership and their counterparts to meet with president obama at the white house. "washington post" just now moving a story reporting on a possible big concession the president might put on the table. the post reporting he will for the first time offer up significant savings in social security. the newspaper sourcing it to people in both parties with knowledge of the president's proposal. in any case, today mr. obama called on both sides to get moving. >> congress has a responsibility to make sure we pay our bills. we've always paid them in the past. the notion that the u.s. is going to default on its debt is just irresponsible. and my expectation is that over the next week to two weeks, that congress working with the wh
, the big question is whether or not his defense attorneys will actually ask for this case and the charges to be dropped, and what the judge will say about that, or, if there's some other reason for them to meet. you know what, what we're learning is there are details that have come out about the accuser in this case, and her past, that even had the prosecution now asking questions about this woman. questions that this trial could hinge on, because she is their witness. the only way that they can really press sexual assault charges against dominic strauss-kahn is with her testimony, convincingly, so it has been said, by prosecutors up until now. will defense attorneys for dominic strauss-kahn then ask this judge to dismiss the charges based on the fact that the prosecution may or may not have enough evidence to go forward. we're watching this, that meeting is coming up, those manhattan prosecutors and defense lawyers, meeting in an office. as soon as we know what -- what has happened, we'll bring it to tower office. this is big news, this man lost his job behind the sexual assault charges
a list gln the big problems aren't going to go away if you cut a mini deal. all it does is delay the moment of truth and so i would say better now than then but if we can't then we'll take the savings we can get now and relitigate this as we get closer to the election. >> the white house does not love the idea of a mini deal. white house officials telling me the president made it clear he believes it is in the country's economic interest to get a significant long-term deal done. we'll see. john? >> so it's independence day, how did the president spend his time? >> largely oust sight, john. although he did judge wrap up posing for pictures and hugging babies and shaking hands with the armed forces here. some of the military families invited not white house for the independence day celebration. and the president did pay tribute to our men and women in uniform. take a list gln thes listen. >> these american patriots, all represented today and all of you who are out there today, you are the reason why america and our armed forces remain the greatest force for peace and security that
failed to make its case. >> the prosecution did not prove their case. the big question that was not answered, how did caylee die? i think there was probably a lot of discussion of it being a horrific accident that dad and casey covered up. unfortunately, it did snowball and got away from them. >> jeff toobin, we've had this conversation before in high profile cases. does sunny have a point? one big trial i covered was the von bullough count. they tried to get seven counts. should they have taken one or two counts that they thought they had a stronger case on and focus there? >> it's not the number of counts, john. it's the death penalty. this was from the start not a case that cried out for the death penalty. there was so many holes in the evidence. where did she die? how did she die? what day did she die? none of this the prosecution knew. there were no eyewitnesses to the murder, as sunny said, the issue of motive was murky. in a lot of all that, some sort of accidental homicide would seem to have been a much more plausible theory. interestingly the alternate juror we
astronauts, the crowds won't be nearly as big. >> our community is going to lose the gift of hundreds of thousands of motel rooms that we really didn't have to work very hard to fill. >> reporter: the town's identity will slip a little farther into the past. >> for me, it's probably going to be a lot of joy and a lot of sorrow, all at the same time. >> reporter: and when the tourists depart this time, all that will be left is a suddenly, shockingly, empty sky. >> to all our astronauts and all of you, thanks for joining us. we'll see you on launch day. "piers morgan tonight" starts right now. >>> six days until freedom. a judge throws the book at casey anthony, but with time served, she will two free next week. >> her release date has been calculated as july 13th, 2011. >> tonight, i'll ask the prosecutor what went wrong. >> in the real world, people within the their child to live. and casey clearly didn't. >> i'll ask the expert ifs the jury did the right thing. >> the jury wanted to say, show me, show me how she was killed. and show me the motive. why she was killed. >> a
